My jacket fabric has been cut! Thankfully Anthropologie has that zoom feature on all their clothing, so I’ve been closely studing the sleeves and the red band around the jacket midsection. I finally decided that for both of these areas, I’m going to made strips of fabric and sew them together to give it the layered, ‘ribbed’ look.
While I was picking up jacket notions (thread, interfacing, etc.), I stopped by Needle Nook Fabrics. This is a store that specializes in stretch fabrics and lingerie supplies (they have lots of classes too). I got some wonderful white cotton, lycra jersey and stretch laces for Jalie 2568. I managed to trace this pattern out, wash the fabrics, and cut everything out. I’m hoping that this pattern will produce the perfect pair of panties!
